SME Live

Event Information

Event Details

SME live is the keystone event for small and medium businesses from the midlands and beyond.

The SME community has a growing need to learn, network and meet specific service providers to support the continued growth of their businesses.

Our mission is to enable growth, to act as a catalyst by bringing together the whole SME community to find inspiration and establish relationships that will enable their businesses to flourish now and in the future

SME Live have created three brand new sectors to best reflect the needs of the SME community:

  • SME Marketing
  • SME Business
  • SME IT & Tech

These three new zones, alongside the return of the hugely successful key note and ‘hands on’ theatres and networking areas, will drive a high quality audience of senior decision makers from SMEs across the region. Giving them access to crucial business services that will sustain business growth, marketing agencies that will help them win new customers and IT & Tec providers that will optimise their businesses.
